The biggest reason to shoot in RAW is the amount of control it gives you in post since it captures so much more information. This means it’s much easier to fix color and exposure problems. I convert all my images in as DNG file to save space, and edit the raw file before I open it in photoshop. Sometimes these small changes are all you need to do to an image, and the settings you use can be synced with your other photos as well.
